Postnatal Yoga and Pilates
The Peaceful Butterfly
Mother and Baby Yoga
New mother and baby postnatal yoga classes starting in Badsey from 27/2/2020.
Postnatal yoga is shown to help relieve aches and pains, help with recovery after childbirth and to help emotional well-being. Plus this will be a lovely opportunity to meet other new mums in your local area and hopefully develop friendships.
Classes will include yoga for mums (with plenty of things to entertain your baby and some involvement of them too with the asanas) and we will also do some nursery rhymes and baby yoga. Plus the all important drinks and biscuits at the end of class.
Pre booking is essential as completion of a health questionnaire is required to aid with planning and tailoring of the session to your needs.

I have two children aged 2 and 4 who I am besotted with. I found the stress of working full time with children too much and wanted more balance. I am passionate that exercise has to be fun to be maintainable. I ensure the classes are free from judgment, relaxed and they always seem to be full of laughter.

Sian Khan Pilates
Mother and Baby Pilates Class
I am a qualified Physiotherapist and fully certified Pilates Instructor with a special interest
in working with women postnatally.
After experiencing a few issues postnatally myself and finding that help was limited and
that I struggled to find the time to exercise with a newborn baby, I decided to set up the
Mother and Baby Pilates Classes!
The classes run on a Thursday morning in Bromsgrove. Numbers are limited and the
classes are booked in advance so that I can get to know you and your babies. The
mummies do Pilates and the babies watch, sleep, try and join in or crawl around-
depending on their age and mood on the day! We do 45 minutes of exercises and then
have a well-deserved cuppa, biscuit and chat at the end!
I provide mats and all the equipment and you just bring a play gym and toys for your little
one. The classes are different each week with a real emphasis on increasing strength
through the pelvic floor, deep abdominals and glutes- areas that frequently become
weakened during pregnancy. We also do some more functional, standing based
exercises to work on our overall strength and balance. I can also provide help and advice
with issues such as Diastasis Recti and incontinence.
Classes are suitable for Mums from their six week Postnatal check up until their baby is a
year old. All levels and abilities are welcomed.
Please get in touch for more information.

Carrie Kidman Beeson Fitness Classes
Malvern & Colwall
Our classes are specifically designed for mums-to-be and postnatal mums and are taught by highly trained ante and postnatal instructors.
During the antenatal class we work on strength, stamina and endurance in the muscle groups traditionally weakened during pregnancy while releasing muscle tensions which will help to counteract all those niggles, aches and pains. It will also set you up for the physical demands of late pregnancy, labour and those early days with a little one.
Our postnatal classes help ladies to rebuild their strength and body shape in a safe way. We have a free Creche at all daytime classes so you can see your baby and know they are safe whilst you exercise.
A fantastic opportunity to meet other mums/ mums-to-be. Following your class you will leave feel relaxed, energised and revitalised!

Blossom Baby Yoga Fun & Fitness
Blossom Baby Yoga Fun & Fitness classes involve exercise for you and your baby. Many exercises are enjoyed together, some with the use of props such as scarves, ribbons, gym ball, puppets etc. We also use lots of rhyme, songs and music.
We start with a gentle warm up and dry massage (over clothes and no oils) and end with a lovely relaxation.
The class offers quality physical stimulation including flowing postures, holding, movement, touch, voice and relaxation. It induces a happy, care-free and lively parent-infant interaction, which develops as your baby grows.
All activities are also designed with the 3 prime areas of the Early Years Foundation framework in mind so they help with your baby’s communication and language, physical development as well as their personal, social and emotional development. Baby classes are designed for babies aged 6 weeks to crawling.
The mental and physical benefits of this fun activity are wide-ranging including better and longer sleeping patterns, easier digestion (colic/wind), self-esteem, better body awareness assisting with development skills for rolling and crawling, as well as enhanced bonding and communication with your baby.
